Never saw one episode.

I'm flying to Europe soon and starting to think about what I may select to watch. Did you enjoy the series?


We LOVED West Wing and were very sorry when the series came to an end.

One of my all-time favorite TV lines was at the beginning of an episode when the President (Martin Sheen) was reacting to the capture of a shot-down American pilot by either Iran or Iraq, and he told the British ambassador who acted as a go-between to inform the captors that "if one hair on the pilot's head is harmed, I shall smite them with fury of rolling thunder." It made me laugh at first, it sounding so very biblical, until I realized that there are only a couple of people on our planet who can actually say something like that without it being hyperbole at all. Anyway, I always loved the dialogue on that show; very smart as well as entertaining writers.
